THE VENTRILOQUIST

First appearance: Detective Comics#583 (Feb 1988)

Arnold Wesker looks like a quiet, peaceful, mild mannered older man, but in the company of his other personality, Scarface, he is a vicious, ruthless criminal. As a schizophrenic, Scarface is a dummy who is made to look like a mafia type boss with a scar on his right cheek. Scarface is the main personality, whith the Ventriloquist only able to emerge briefly, until Scarface demeans his alter ego. Upon meeting with Batman, the Ventriloquist/Scarface is housed in Arkham Asylum.

Through therapy, Arnold has tried to rid his mind of Scarface, going so far as to take up a less dangerous puppet in "Socko." Somehow, Scarface breaks through the Ventriloquist's mind and forces Arnold to do his bidding.
